It's silver because its a centennial quarter and made of silver, Thus not painted and not depreciating the value. unfortunately out of a set it will usually only fetch around 10$ in an auction unless someone is desperate to finish their collection.

silver is responsible for reflecting property of old times smooth silver pieces were used as mirrors but they got corroded easily .

This tradition goes back hundreds of years. Coins made of precious metal have ridges or lettering on the edges so unscrupulous people cannot scrape a few cents worth of gold off the edge to sell and then spend the coin for its full value. Base metal such as nickel, copper, aluminum, and zinc have such a low value it would not be worth your time to 'shave' a nickel.

The Anthony and Sacagawea Dollars have smooth edges but the Presidential Dollars have lettered edges.

Silver commodities are just what they sound like: the metal silver. Someone trading silver as a commodity rather than a precious metal is going to make a product from the silver, so they buy it in ingots. Precious metal traders buy bullion coins. If you're an industrial silver user, you can request your silver be made into whatever size ingot you want--within reason, of course; you're not too likely to order a 20,000-pound silver ingot even if you need that much metal--that it be alloyed with various metals to change its characteristics, or anything else you need to make your production as smooth as possible.
